In his opening remarks, Igor Levitin reported on the discussion of preparations for launching new national projects at the State Council commissions in the context of the goals set out by the President in his Address to the Federal Assembly. He noted, in particular, that the drafting of new national projects related to technological sovereignty should focus on addressing cross-sector issues, including those related to international cooperation and personnel training.

Denis Manturov briefed the meeting participants on the Government’s efforts to strengthen technological sovereignty in industrial sectors.

Chairman of the commission Alexei Dyumin noted that the President had instructed them to reduce the share of imported final demand goods and services to 17 percent by 2030. To attain this goal, systematic import substitution measures must be taken for a broad range of products, such as low interest loans and subsidies for R&D, as well as the launch of projects related to technological sovereignty mentioned in the Presidential Address.

Veronika Nikishina informed the meeting about the development of new industrial export support measures and the training of foreign trade professionals. She spoke about the importance of promoting foreign trade professions among young people, students and high school graduates, as well as the need to upgrade educational and professional standards for the training of such professionals.

Speaking about ways to increase industrial exports, First Deputy Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region Alexei Shmykov proposed extending the status of the International Cooperation and Exports national project until 2030. He also called for more attention to be given to improving logistics on high priority international routes and creating joint enterprises with friendly countries.

In addition, the participants discussed the improvement of solutions and instruments for the implementation of the productivity enhancement project and ways to scale up the programme of supporting the suppliers of corporations in Russia’s priority industrial sectors.

The commission will examine the ideas voiced by the participants and will incorporate the best of them when preparing proposals on the development of new national projects related to technological sovereignty.
